“Fabulous apartment in great location”
Reviewed 18 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed in this great little apartment for a weekend during November. Eve, the owner, met us at the apartment and was very welcoming - showed us how to operate the heating and gave us a quick 'how to' on the kitchen appliances. The apartment itself is very comfortable and cosy and has everything you need should the weather not prove conducive to venturing out - Virgin TV, DVD player, CD player and wifi all teamed up with a comfy couch and chairs to chill out in. The bathroom is spacious and has a wonderful jacuzzi bath which I tried out - not the most powerful of jets, but it still did the job and was incredibly relaxing. As for the bedroom, the bed was the comfiest I have ever slept in - the mattress is (I think) memory foam and we both had the best sleep, I didn't want to get up! The location of this apartment is great - just off of Grassmarket, which is lively and full of bars and restaurants, and only a 10 minute walk to Princes Street if you want some retail therapy.

What really made it so special for us, though, were all the little touches that Eve had laid on - fresh milk, juice and yoghurts in the fridge plus eggs from her own hens and home made jam, a welcoming bottle of wine and chocolates, and fresh flowers. Even hand made soaps, shampoo and shower gel in the bathroom - we felt very much at home and had a wonderful stay. We will definitely look to book this apartment again next time we are in Edinburgh.

“A real gem.”
Reviewed 9 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

What a find this lovely little flat was. What set it apart was the thoughtfulness of Eve, the owner, and the many extras she had left us. Fantastic. And the location is perfect - a minute's walk from the Grassmarket. A beautifully presented holiday apartment. V

Come back soon.

“Everything you could possibly need!”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Down a little unassuming lane is a little pearl. Just around the corner from Maison De Moggy for any cat lovers. We were greeted by the lovely Eve who showed us around. Theres nothing she hasnt provided - we had popped into M & S for some supplies but we could easily have gone there without the basics. Milk, bread, wine, chocolates, fruit basket, yoghurts, basket of Scottish goodies, cereals, crisps and even eggs from her chickens. The bathroom had equal amounts of bits and pieces, even home made soaps. Eve also supplies extra bedding for the sofabed in the living room. From the lane you look up and see the Castle, and just around the corner is the Grassmarket. Lovely places to eat and drink - if you're looking for a nice Mexican I'd recommend Mariachis. If you're looking to buy whisky pay Josh a visit in The Whisky Shop. This young man knows his stuff. Will definitely be returning - Eve has made a holiday let feel like a home.

“Hidden gem including host!”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

If you have the opportunity to stay in Eve's flat then you are a lucky traveler who has found a hidden gem. Eve will go above and beyond your expectations. She filled the flat with homemade soaps, jams and eggs from her very own chickens! Open the front door and there is the castle. Tourist attractions, local restaurants and pubs are all within a short walk. Eve takes pride in maintaining her home and treating tourists like they are Scottish royalty. Please buy properties all over the world so we can continue to stay in your flats!!!

Liked best: The personal added touches and the location.
Liked least: The bedding only had a thick blanket. We needed something lighter but would be great for most.

“Fantastic stay- great location, quiet, great value & Very thoughtful owner”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed for a long weekend, perfect for 3 of us, sofa bed is a good double with fresh bedding. The location is unbeatable, just off Grassmarket on a very quiet side street but so near all the action. We had no issues with noise but just bring earplugs if worried. The owner has thought of everything - you really will be spoilt! The apartment is very clean and fresh with everything you would need - home-made soaps, jacuzzi bath & food to start you off (milk, bread, eggs, yoghurts, biscuits & prosecco!) She even has a new fan since the last review! Good communication, reliable, clean apartment in an excellent location - would not hesitate to book!!
Thank you very much Eve - we had a fabulous experience of Edinburgh and are very keen to return!
